ENCOUNTERING THE DIVINE

There is no limit to the ways in which human beings encounter the divine. Our experience of God’s presence and power is infinitely varied. It can happen in a dramatically impressive event; it can happen in a moment of utter quiet. In the end it is not something under our control. The initiative is always God’s. Often enough it occurs precisely when we have lost control of our lives, when our defences are down and we are aware of our human frailty. Our vulnerability allows God to reach into our lives and touch us. ............ Brisbane Liturgia
